School-wide positive behaviour support is an evidence-based framework for Victorian government schools for preventing and responding to student behaviour. It aims to create a positive school climate, a culture of student competence and an open, responsive management system for all school community members.
School Wide Positive Behaviour is a tiered approach to support students various learning needs around behaviours that we see and expect at school. The school develops interventions to support students at all tiers whether it be with sitting in place or keeping hands and feet to themselves. We work with the students, parents and any other supports to assist aour students to be ready to learn.
